Emergent Solar Energy has completed its latest commercial project, a 210 kW bi-directional rooftop solar installation at Abel Construction’s Indianapolis headquarters near the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The building is also home to Abel Motorsports, a racing team in the IndyCar-sanctioned Indy NXT racing series. Indy NXT used to be called Indy Lights. Abel Motorsports is also fielding a car in the 2023 Indianapolis 500 for the first time, with driver R.S. with Enerson.

Jeremy Lipinski, managing partner of Emergent Solar Energy, based at Purdue Research Park in West Lafayette, said the project is one of the largest of its kind in Indianapolis.

“It’s also an example of how solar energy can be integrated into existing commercial buildings to offset electricity purchased by utilities, provide economic benefits through commercial tax incentives and help businesses meet their sustainability goals,” Lipinski said.
